Little Children playing in the meadow
knowing not of lifes troubling sorrow,
joyfully laughing in the summer sun
caring not what comes tomorrow.

Caring not if old age may come
caring not what life may bring,
only living in the moment
while in youth they play and sing.

Oh that I might be as They
knowing not what life may bring,
caring only for the moment
and the songs that I might sing.
Bob Mitchum
